World Antimicrobial Resistance Awareness Week

The World Veterinary Association is highly committed to preventing antimicrobial resistance by working together with other stakeholders through the One Health approach.

The WVA and its member national associations and stakeholders must work against AMR through awareness campaigns, professional and public education programs, and pharmaceutical stewardship, and propose and share appropriate actions in this with other professions and work together in the One Health approach.
The WVA is currently developing a global list of essential veterinary medicines for livestock as part of the pharmaceutical stewardship agenda.
